I know this is obvious, but it sounds like you need to find out what's 
"right" about the .mt file, and apply it to the other script files.

Some places to start:

- file permissions - apparently those of are correct; are 
permissions of other files identical to these?

- Rev engine path, stated in first line of script - make line 1 of all 
scripts like line 1 of

- I remember once having scripts disallowed from running (by Apache?) 
because their filenames didn't end with ".cgi"; maybe yours have to end 
with ".mt"?

- if you get "internal error" messages from the others, they may contain 
script code errors.

That's about it for my bag of tricks, Tom. Hopefully someone more 
cgi-competent than myself can pick this up if the above items don't 
solve your problems.
